    Hi Nicola, I developed a dry cough, it appeared to coincide with the formula being changed on medication, spoke to pharmacist who had not heard of this happening before, I took myself off the medication and cough improved, though took a couple of weeks (I would not encourage anyone to stop taking medication), however just an awareness of side effects, to discuss further with GP.

    Same here Nicola new blood pressure tablets and developed cough but doctor knew this was a side effect this could be same for you.

    changed tablets 3 or 4 times but it took a while for cough to go away.
